Millenials are young humans that were born in either one of these two decades: Generation Y (born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001).
They are often at odds with each other and are not to be confused with the Baby Boomers (born between 1946-1964). Another term you might have heard, Generation Snowflake, describes young humans who easily take offense over the most trivial issues, are emotionally vulnerable and unable to cope with even slight challenges.
Just to add to possible confusion, the Millenials have also been called the Peter Pan or Boomerang Generation because many of them, after initially setting up their own place to live, suddenly decide to move back to their parents. Sometimes this is out economic reasons, other times it is simply laziness – as in “Mom takes care of me.”
Watching this video, one begins to grasp the difficulties for a Millenial during a job interview.
